of the teapot, and it also tells us who the maker was. it was by alexander forbes of aberdeen, circa 1730 to 1735. and what you have here is a really, really superb scottish teapot. it's got rococo decoration round the top here and at 1730 to '35, that was very early for rococo decoration, because rococo only came into england in the very late 1720s, so the scots were quick to catch on to this new form of design. everything was asymmetrical and naturalistic. and if we turn it over and have a look at the bottom, we've got the marks here, a.f. for alexander forbes of aberdeen. now, if this was an edinborough pot, i would have said it was worth £2,000 or 3,000. but because it is aberdeen, which is much rarer, i think it's probably worth about £8,000. oh, my. very nice. very nice indeed. i shall enjoy a cup of tea out of it when i come and see you next. thank you very much indeed. thank you. it's confession time for our experts. in this series, we're asking them which is the most prized posseson in their collection and which was perhaps a bit of a mistake. and john benjamin, our jewelry exp

the intelligence officials of this country from keith alexander to james clapper have long tonight, but now admitted they were not telling the truth about the u.s. is spying on americans? >> clearly, his disclosures have changed the course of human history, really. i think his initial disclosures were a service to our country because now we are having this conversation. and we wouldn't be having this conversation. i can't speak for mr. snowden's actions now, he is basically a person looking out for his own life at this point, but what he did initially was a service to our country. we need to facilitate a way for whistleblowers to do that in a better fashion. i don't think our current whistleblower laws would have provided for him to do what he has done in a better fashion, so i would like to see some reform there as well. >> do you think russia was right to grant him temporary asylum? >> i'm not in a comment on what russia should have done with mr. snowden. >> but do you feel mr. snowden did the right thing? >> i think initially he did. it would be hard for me to fault his actions at this p
